Calling All Veterans Day is an opportunity for the 45,000 Veterans in Rhode Island to receive information on resources and benefits from organizations that empower independent aging for themselves, their spouses or their aging parents. Breakout sessions on aphasia, dementia, grandparents caring for grandchildren, Veteran Service Organizations, the Aid & Attendance benefit and one more being confirmed will take place throughout the event to provide additional information to attendees. There will also be an opportunity onsite to apply for Veterans benefits.
The agenda and updates are posted on rielderinfo.com as well as sent out in our weekly newsletter-make sure you’re signed up for it!
Calling All Veterans Day is also an opportunity for our community to come together to support organizations that make sure our Veterans are not aging alone, in need of friendship, comradery or support. There will be multiple organizations present that are seeking volunteers. A goal of the event is to create "matchmaking" between organizations that need volunteers and attendees who wish to volunteer.
